Such a cool day trip from Amsterdam, I definitely recommend, as you get to see the Brussels city centre with a walking tour and the bus also goes to the Atomium! The guide was really good, and I recommend trying the cherry beer (it actually is super red) :D You also get enough free time in Brussels on this day trip which I appreciate since I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything :D
